    I have my odata feed working correctly, however I am running into issues when trying to filter on a child property. The way the API is setup it expects that you run a lambda expression against the endpoint to filter on child properties. I've requested help from support but keep getting answers which don't apply or that are vague.


    My URL looks like this:


    Basically select top 20 from POHeaders where any POLine.ItemNumber = 55286749


    Someone has to have ran into this before...is there a solution or did we buy a $1400 product that won't address our needs??

    Hello Ozzie,

    The supported filter operators are listed in the filter.operator help article. Unfortunately there is no operator which will apply the "any" lambda operator to the generated URL. 

    The transport.parameterMap is the function which converts the request parameters to a format suitable for the remote service. By default, the data source sends the parameters using jQuery's conventions.
